    Hi everyone, firstly thanks for comments on my first post i feel very welcome. I realise now that the time i posted wassn't too good for all you americans - probably all asleep! Anyway this is my first effort at shooting rivers, comments please.

    Is the branch thats caught the sun in the middle too distracting....should I take it out? cheers

    Ah Chiller, you and I get along so well today :hug:: .
    We always agree on almost everything here today. Isn't that nice??? :lmao:

    I, too, like it as it is and don't even find it too dark in the foreground. I like the rushing water, too. Where did you put the camera to achieve this - you needed quite some exposure time, right? I always get bad camera shake, it must be the shakes from old age or so... :roll:

    Thanks La Foto, I had the camera on a tripod as low as possible right on the lowest curve of the river bank (High risk of knocking the whole lot in the river by accident!!....doh!) and i used a 3s exposure and tweeked in ps of course:)

    Cheers mabs good to see a fellow westcountryman on here, it was taken at shaw prior - just up from the two bridges and car park - some good shooting up there.

    Thanks for all comments guys, maybe i will just leave the branch in...looked like a pain in the arse in ps anyway!
